sample1

Here’s a brief look at the brochure I designed for an educational convention 2-Tone and I will be participating in (our first ever) called ACPA (American College Personnel Association), where we’ll be presenting our SHAOLIN JAZZ College Lectures (parallels between Jazz and Hip-Hop culture lecture and Creative Branding Lecture).  The convention will be taking place in Vegas, Monday March 5th – Wednesday March 6th.  For more pics of the brochure click Read the rest of this entry

The SHAOLIN JAZZ Project – College Lecture – Univ Wyoming

University of Wyoming is up next and we’ll have the very fortunate pleasure of spending two days on their campus with programming that will consist of a panel discussion and live concert (SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE), which will include Sound of the City backing 2-Tone on  Wednesday November 7th and another edition of our COLOR of SOUND art exhibition, which, in addition to our work, will include work from various UYWO students.

Thanks to the Wyoming Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, Michael Lange, Kayla Luneman, and Ashley Rama Dallum for coordinating the events.

As I mentioned before, 2-Tone and I will be visiting a variety of colleges and universities where we’ll be giving talks about SHAOLIN JAZZ as well as discussing the parallels and similarities between both Jazz culture and Hip-Hop culture and University of Virginia will  be first.

Thanks to Dion Lewis (UVA – Office of African American Affairs) and the Student Hip Hop Organization (SHHO) bringing us out and supporting, respectively!

SHAOLIN JAZZ – NOLA Listening Party

Been keeping this one under wraps – so 2-Tone and I will be visiting a variety of colleges and universities where we’ll be giving talks about SHAOLIN JAZZ as well as discussing the parallels and similarities between both Jazz culture and Hip-Hop culture, with the University of Virginia being first.

To complement the talks we’ll also be doing listening parties in select markets.  Tulane University will be the second school we visit (shouts to Renard Bridgewater a.k.a. Slangston Hughes and Holly Hobbs for hooking it up) and will be the first market where we’ll be doing a listening party.  Big ups to Patrick at Sneaker Politics and Humid Beings for helping to spread the word and see you in NOLA Thursday February 2nd.

More coming soon…

The SHAOLIN JAZZ Project

Stay tuned for this one people!  2-Tone and I are trying to expand the dynamic with a program that encompasses discussion, art, and music.
